21 Classes for Student Blogging

February 10, 2009

I have started using 21classes for student blogging. It has some features that I really like. If you have seen it before,
take another look, it is now much better than when I first saw it.

Things I like about 21Classes:

  • Good privacy settings
  • Easy to use – less features than some blog tools but what is there is easy for students
  • No student email required
  • Simple account creation
  • Some customization allowed
  • Allows some HTML, including embedding images and videos
  • All student blogs are connected through the teacher’s blog
  • Teacher’s blog is “portal to classroom blog community”
  • It is easy for student to find and comment on one anothers’ blogs

Things I don’t like about 21 Classes:

  • Lack of features
  • Not as attractive as some
  • Free accounts only get 2 megs of storage
